Well, I've got 3 different AIBs with a custom Radeon RX 6800 XT on their way to me -- with 1 of those turning up tomorrow, hopefully. I'm not the only reviewer without a card it seems, as it is more common than I thought with a trickle of cards making it into the hands of reviewers.

But it's not only the lack of cards for reviewers, it's the fact that they are not available to buy anywhere right now -- and there's an even bigger reason for that: some reviewers aren't even being provided with final pricing for the custom Radeon RX 6800 XT. It's hard to write your final thoughts and recommendations without pricing.

What triggered this was VideoCardz and its custom Radeon RX 6800 XT Roundup -- of which there are not many at all.
